Hey GirlMoguls, now that Harry Potter is over have you been jonesing for a new series to sink your teeth into? Well you should check out The Magnificent Twelve – The Call a new fantasy, sci-fi-ish series by Michael Grant. It’s a totally fun and funny book with the main character Mac an unlikely hero – for one thing he is totally ordinary – height, face, hair, abilities. And he’s afraid of everything, name a phobia, this kid has it! The book alternates between events a long time ago, when a band of heroes defeated the Pale Queen and banished her to eternity forever, which since they couldn’t count very high back then was only 3000 years – and now, those 3000 years is drawing to the close, and a new band of heroes must be called. And Mack is the first. And he brings with him Stefan, formerly Richard Gere Middle School’s most terrifying bully but now Mack’s body guard.
Mack starts his quest and finds the second of the 12- Jarrah. And the big bad evil this time – Risky, the Pale Queen’s daughter. With a million dollars and a credit card, Mack and his crew are set for adventure – you’ll love the funnies in this book and look forward to the next one.
